Organization

SafeMinds is a 501(c)3 non-profit, grassroots organization comprised of parents, self-advocates, scientists, clinicians, government relations specialists, communications professionals and non-profit experts. Most of our work is carried out thanks to the volunteer efforts of our board and committee members. We operate with a small paid staff so most of our dollars can go to programs.

SafeMinds was started by parents–so we maintain a strong family voice and sense of urgency in everything we do. Parents and self-advocates populate our board and committees, along with relevant stakeholders. We proactively network and collaborate with high-risk/high-reward scientists, clinicians, policy makers and organizations who are dissatisfied with the failures of the status quo.
